Drees was also attracted by Kings Chapel's sense of community, he said.
She's anticipating an easy commute on either Arno Road or Interstate 65 to her place of work in Cool Springs. Her husband, Clovis, will have a quick link to I 24 for his Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre commute to Antioch. The Franklin based company has plans for 126 homes in the community, which will have prices starting at $400,000.
Tom Natelli, CEO of Natelli Communities, said he understands why developers have discovered the area between Franklin and Murfreesboro.
The combination of amenities, a convenient location and affordable prices is attracting attention, said Jen Lucy, director of sales for the Franklin based Jones Co.
For example, when Operation Finally Home recently gave a house in Kings Chapel to Air Force Staff Sgt. Luke Van Dorston, a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, and his family, Kings Chapel donated the land and neighbors chipped in to buy the appliances. Carbine Associates, a homebuilder in the community, built the house.
Bryan Edwards, president of Hughes Edwards Builders, agrees. The company, well known for its custom homes in Sumner County, built Don Simcock and Kim Shacklock's house in Kings Chapel and expects to build more. Division President Ron Schroeder said the company was impressed by the subdivision's amenities, including a heated saltwater pool, a clubhouse and a chef who hosts cooking classes and prepares take home meals for residents.
"I lived in Brentwood for 22 years and didn't know the people two houses down," said Schroeder, but Kings Chapel is more close knit.
They aren't alone. Homebuilders and new residents are flocking to the Arrington community between Franklin and Murfreesboro along Highway 96. They are also discovering the College Grove community near 840 to the south.

"It's very bucolic. Rolling hills, lots of horse farms, but with fabulous access," he said.
Jama Metcalf and her family are looking forward to moving into their new home being built in Falls Grove, a new subdivision being developed in rural College Grove just minutes from 840.
"Even Green Hills isn't that far. You can easily get to Smyrna or Cool Springs. It's an amazing location," she said.
For years development has been focused on Franklin's west side, home to the popular Westhaven community. Now, thanks to its well developed highway network and proximity to employment centers in Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Nashville and Franklin, the east side is drawing attention, said Katrina Roberts, a broker for Kings Chapel Realty.
The community, being developed by Gaithersburg, Maryland based Natelli Communities, will have 381 homes on 450 acres when it is fully built out. Half of the community will be reserved as green space. Amenities will include trails, a pool, a clubhouse and fitness center, tennis, playgrounds and a putting green.

Ryan Homes is also building homes in Falls Grove, with prices beginning around $400,000. Both Jones Co. and Ryan have model homes in Falls Grove.
"The setting, the amenities, the convenience. It's pretty sweet," Simcock said of their home in Kings Chapel, a gated subdivision about eight miles east of Franklin. They moved in just over a week ago.
